The new ‘non-rivalry’ continues: “Look no further than this idiot”

There was a desire in Memphis to receive the Golden State Warriors. The team that eliminated them in the conference semifinals last year, in a very hot series with several confrontations between players, both on and off the field. It doesn’t look like things are going to cool down anytime soon. With another duel still to play in the city of Tennessee on the 18th, surely highly anticipated, the Grizzlies managed to beat their rival for the first time this season. They did it with a first quarter that is already black history for Steve Kerr’s Warriors, who conceded 48 goals. They had never before conceded a similar amount in any quarter in the regular season under their current coach.

It was clear that the Grizzlies had come out for the life of the game. And it may be so. Not sportingly, because they have been getting a cushion throughout the season, but emotionally. They needed this victory for many reasons. Due to the current situation in which they find themselves with the whole issue of Ja Morant, whom it is not very clear when we will see him again with his team shirt. For injuries to Brandon Clarke and Steven Adams. For vindicating themselves in the face of all these absences and in the face of the latest defeats that seemed to confirm that they were no longer a real candidate to achieve anything important this year. And, of course and not least, for beating the Warriors. A confrontation that they have marked in red on the calendar.

The command of the team fell to Tyus Jones, that substitute point guard who, deep down, is as a starter as any of the team’s starters. He finished with 22 points and 7 assists. They also highlighted those that are supposed to be the two stars of the team that remain with the absence of Morant. Desmon Bane and Jaren Jackson each with 21 points today. The Warriors, who recovered a remarkable version of Stephen Curry (29 points, 4/8 on 3-pointers, 7 rebounds and 4 assists), were about to bring the difference on the scoreboard below double digits, but in the end they never got there. to put themselves in a position to attempt a real comeback. And with this it’s already 8 straight losses away from home, where they have a horrible 7-26 record. A real problem for a team that looks like it’s not going to make the playoffs with home field advantage…if it does. Right now they are sixth, but tied for eighth and only a game and a half ahead of tenth. The play-in is a real threat.

“Look no further than this idiot”

And among all the sports, the extra-sports was also seen. In the second quarter, after a basket by Dillon Brooks that made it 74-57, he and Draymond Green clashed almost comically. The one from the Warriors picked up the ball to get out of the background and on his way he met Brooks. Neither of them moved away, they ended up coming face to face, Green put the ball in the face of Brooks, who also hit it for a few seconds on the raised arm of the Warriors power forward. The blood did not reach the river, but the contest has its intrastory.

During the week Green spoke about Brooks on his podcast, calling him an “idiot” and a “clown” and saying he had an amateur’s knowledge of basketball: “If you’ve ever wondered why the Grizzlies aren’t ready to challenge for a championship, look no further than this jerk.”. Of course, the moron He has answered him in the interview after the game, still on the track: “You should give Draymond the microphone, make him talk about me. Keep him talking about me so he can play better. I didn’t mind the comments he made about me because I know I’m a better player than him, but trying to turn my teammates against me… That’s a cheap shot. That explains the type of player he is.”.

Draymond was already asked in the press room about everything that had happened and about the rivalry between the two teams. A rivalry that for him does not exist. These are his reasons:Rivalries are created when you win and I win. We’ve won four times, but I think their organization has zero championships, so I can’t call this a rivalry. Anyone can win a match in March. Does that mean something? It is very difficult for me to get out of bed to win a game in March”. The next helping of “non-rivalry” on March 18 in Memphis.
